Spindle Introducing: Eleanor Friedberger

Wednesday 03 February 2016

Ever wondered who the Franz Ferdinand track Eleanor Put Your Boots On is about? No, nor me (and, actually, I don’t even know the song), but the rumour is that it’s about Eleanor Friedberger, half of brother/sister duo The Fiery Furnaces and ex-girlfriend of Franz Ferdinand singer Alex Kapranos.

Since The Fiery Furnaces went on hiatus in 2011, both Eleanor and her brother Matthew have pursued solo careers, and Eleanor has just released album number three, New View. Check out the video for her latest single Sweetest Girl, and see Eleanor live tonight at Hackney’s Moth Club!

  • Zoë presents a ‘new music with female vocals’ show for Hoxton Radio every Sunday, 4-6pm. Every Wednesday, she will be introducing one of her favourite female vocalists to Spindle.
